Top 5 Tuesday – Science Fiction Novels

Top 5 Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by Shannah@BionicBookWorm exploring different topics. If you are interested in participating Shannah would love for you to join in. Here is a list of the  Upcoming Topics in June – please remember to ping back a specific post of hers so she gets a notification and will add you to the participants list!

This week’s topic is Sci-fi, a genre I don’t tend to read but which I have amazingly read enough books for this post.

My favourite without a doubt is Station Eleven which I listened to earlier this year and could easily listen to again.

The War of the Worlds is also a favourite because it really surprised me when I read a few years ago, because it wasn’t the boring dry book I was expecting it to be. It probably also helps that I’ve loved the musical version for decades.

Time and Time Again is another book that totally surprised me, as I tried a book by this author before and dnf’d it quite early on because I didn’t like the main character.

Dark Matter was a buddy read with Liz @Cover to Cover and I loved the whole experience. It had me flipping pages trying to work it all out.

Expiration Day was a book I won from the author on Booklikes a number of years ago. I was surprised to win a copy and surprised that I enjoyed it so much as it’s also a YA read.

So which books would be in your Top 5?

  1. I haven’t read much sci-fi, but I have read Dark Matter so at least I’ve read one of your top 5 in the genre, haha. I still need to get myself a copy of Station Eleven, and I’ve seen The War of the Worlds film, does that count? haha

      1. See there you go, I didn’t even know they changed the setting from Victorian times to modern day, and England to America – I may have to read the book after all!

  2. I’m a huge fan of H. G. Wells and one of his books (albeit not War of the Worlds) made it onto my list as well. If you haven’t read any of his other stuff I really recommend it!

  3. Well I had difficulties to do our Top 5 this week and had the help of my kids LOL

  4. Great post! I really have to read Dark Matter. It seems to be on everyone’s list! I have a copy of War of the Worlds, but like you said, I’m afraid it will be a dry read.
